Quick Review: Olif in Betws-Y-Coed, Wales Review
I’d booked Olif, a Welsh tapas and gin bar, for dinner which was a compulsory requirement during the Covid pandemic.
The staff took the pandemic seriously and there were plastic barriers between all the tables.
We ordered a few tapas including cockles (£6), squid (£7), cod bites (£7) and prawns (£7).
I wanted to try the Taffy Apple Cider (£5) which was sweetish; It wasn’t as sugary as the name suggests and was perfectly drinkable and my partner ordered the Fever Tree Tonic (£2).
There were a lot of breaded and fried orders because my partner is a fan, however it’s not really my kind of thing. Thankfully these tapas didn’t taste oily which was ideal, however I wouldn’t choose it for myself in the future.
I did really like the cockles and the frying actually added a nice sharp taste to them.
The Eton mess (£6) was absolutely massive and definitely needed to be shared between us. It was deliciously sweet, presented in an artistically messy way and a nice indulgence.
My favourite tapas were the un-breaded and lightly fried prawns which were nice and juicy.
Our meal came to a reasonable £40 for two, so despite it not being my favourite meal I’m happy to try a new tapas restaurant.
